In most cases - yes - and this is what I will do when I can. In anycase we are 
going to be dealing with 8bit char by the time the stuff gets to the ini lib.

I am surprised that this simple limitation has not been an inconvenience if 
not a  problem for folks but with no demand to have it addressed I guess its 
near impossible to make a case for fixing it - given what I have put forward 
thus far. Well - less work for me :)
